A while ago, I penned a fairly angry response to something circulating on the internet – the 21 Habits of Happy People. It pissed me off beyond belief, that there was an inference that if you weren’t Happy, you simply weren’t doing the right things.
I’ve had depression for as long as I can…
Might I add that mentally slapping someone who tells you to “Get over your pity party” or “Shouldn’t you be feeling better by now?” is rather cheering. If you can summon the energy. Otherwise just ignore their blather as so much annoying background noise to your pain. Note: Slapping them for reals probably does not count as exercise. Darn.
